is the draw. >> right. >> and as our economy recovers, that draw will exist again. it's certainly worth noting that the recession likely had a lot to do with some of the changes and the number of undocumented immigrants in this country and the number of people attempting to enter the country illegally. having said that, i think to his point about trying to crack down on employers and i guess ramp up enforcement, via fees, i would imagine would be quite frightening for businesses and industry that is are heavily dependent on undocumented workers. >> luke, you know, i remember quite clearly ann coulter commenting a while back after health care immigration was the big issue that conservatives needed to focus on because, quote, if the entire country goes the way of california republicans will never be able to win a national election again. i understand the political reality that republicans feel like they have got to get this issue off the table if they make any inroads with latinos but is there also a fear among republicans that if you do have a pathway to citizenship for 11 million

health of our economy, we are not just losing% we' we're gett destroyed. this shows the long decline of labor union membership. just yesterday we received a new and unsurprising data point from the bls. the number of union members fell by 400,000 last year, and overall membership is now at a 97-year low. why does this matter? well, the implication here is pretty clear. as labor goes, so goes the middle class. and make no mistake, labor is going. right now we're locked in a vicious downward spiral. republicans driven by corporate money and a cynical zeal for undermining one of the richest sources of democratic campaign contributions attack labor rights in state after state. they're frequently successful attacks make it harder for unions to organize and lead to fewer people joining unions. with fewer people in unions, there are fewer people who understand the benefits of membership for themselves and their family and there are more people to be talked into the company caricature of union bosses as boorish thugs and mafia goons. so public support for labor unions declines allowing repub

elected libyan parliament aryans. they were optimistic with creating the economy and restoring human rights for the people. he was as enthusiastic as they were about the prospects. no question he will be missed by all who knew him and worked with him. one of the things that troubles me is the hoops we on this committee had to jump through to get to the facts surrounding the deaths of these public servants. the state department has delayed and delayed coming forth with information. the committee was presented with the data, it amounted to what was called a document dump. hundreds of pages of paper in wide disarray in no order in terms of relevance and chronology in duplicate and different binders, making it difficult to locate documents of any help. our public servants in libya were murdered on september 11. it's now january 23rd. more than four months later. it's unacceptable that the state department made it so difficult for congress to exercise the oversight and responsibility. a couple of questions. within a couple of months of the attack, within the july and august period, they e
